After 3D modeling, painting, generative art and photography, Street-Art is the next big artistic movement invested in the NFT revolution.
Cryptos and NFT’s are currently experiencing a slowdown, but despite this, some projects deserve special attention, including Streetlab.io. This is the new decentralized platform dedicated to #StreetArtNFT. It is a platform that specializes in drops of NFT collections created by Street-Artists. And unlike some platforms that aim to “mark” photographs of physical Street-Art works, Streetlab.io invites Artists to unleash their creativity through digital works.
Streetlab.io: the decentralized platform dedicated to Street-Artists
Streetlab.io is a platform that allows Street-Artistsexploring the world of NFTs. In fact, it opens up new fields of creativity in them, directly connecting them to their collectors. In addition, it gives them access to new sources of income. In addition, Streetlab.io is aimed at building the largest #StreetArtNFT community. Also, it gives all street artists who want to enter the world of NFTs ways to act.
What sets this platform apart from others, Streetlab.io invites street-artists to experiment digitally with their journey and their inspirations. This encourages collaboration with other artistic currents.
This is not a platform that focuses on existing physical works sold by NFT. In fact, the goal is became Artblocks in Street-Art. That is, a place where street artists can launch their projects and where collectors can buy NFT StreetArt.
Founders and Teams
Alexis D’Eudeville and Sebastien Rouby are the two founders of Streetlab.io. Alexis left Google to focus on Web 3, convinced that team management is an art.
As for Sébastien, he left finance to become an executioner and left this activity to dedicate himself to NFT marketing. Since February 2021, he has joined the incredible NFT family. First through collectibles, from Veve to Opensea, then moved slightly into gen art and 1: 1.
They built the streetlab because they were convinced of that NFT technology is a fundamentally positive revolution for arts and crafts.
Julien Bessaguet joined the Streetlab team for two reasons: the long-term vision and the technical challenge. In addition to Maxime Oulé, Sonia Ankri has joined Streetlab to recruit and guide the most famous Street-Artists who want to get started on Web3.
Streetlab is designed to welcome all street artists who want to start the NFT adventure. As such, the platform worked with a talented and respected street artist, Yescka, for the Genesis collection.
Streetlab wants to attract the attention of street artists, galleries, schools, museums and collectors clubs. In fact, more than 25 world-renowned street artists are already on board to prepare their drops. Especially Difuz, Nefrit, Chader, Lafleuj, Mehdi Cibille, Falko, Sam Elgreco, Dalek, Jason Naylor, Lucas Beaufort, Shane.
Great collaborations have emerged in the NFT community. Including Zeneca, Doodles, BAYC community, CryptoPunks community, OSF (coming soon). Not including Streetlab supported and advised by leading crypto-art OGs such as Benoît Couty of MoCA and Carlos Marcial Torres.
Streetlab.io launches the Genesis collection
To finance and manage Streetlab, a Genesis Collection designed by Mexican Street-Artist Yescka may be launched on June 2, 2022. The latter consists of 4444 NFTs. Named the Free Muertos Tribute, it is a limited collection of NFTs consisting of hand -drawn characters.
These characters represent freedom fighters, resurrected from the dead. They guided Street-Artists on the NFT scene to make their voices heard and fight censorship.
How to buy an NFT Genesis?
First of all, you need to know the price of the NFT Genesis set in Ethereum. So we have to first buying ethereum in an exchange like Etoro.
The Metamask Wallet is the most suitable. Genesis NFTs can then be minted directly on site or purchased at Opensea after each launch.
The Role of Free Muertos Tribute NFTs at Streetlab
The Free Muertos Tribute has a special role in managing Streetlab. Collectors of these NFTs get a privileged access to various devices and earnings and share of profits. In addition, the collection contains unique NFTs created by Ethereum blockchains. A strict NFT limit per wallet address will be set to ensure equitable distribution.
In summary, Genesis owners will receive:
- about Streetlab.io revenue
- the possibility of sponsoring a Street-Artist and receiving a share of the platform’s revenues
- privilege access to future Streetlab downgrades
- right to vote for curation.
All holders are allowed to mark their own projects or products using their NFT Free Muertos and sell them independently.
How Streetlab works
Any artist can access the Streetlab resource center and join the discord community to learn about NFTs. However, in order to be highlighted and promoted on Streetlab, artists must apply by presenting their project itself.
Then, the community sets eligibility criteria so that street artists can apply and promote and sell their works on Streetlab. The idea is agree on what part of street art is and establishing rules that projects must follow in order to be promoted.
Streetlab perfectly illustrates how the blockchain and the metaverse come together in the field of Art. Each member of the community can be a streetlab protector and be able to participate in a selection of the best street artists, ready to embark on the NFT journey.
Rewarding active community members and encouraging collaboration among colleagues is an important part of Streetlab.io.
For this reason, any genesis holder can sponsor a street artist on the platform. The sponsor will receive 5% of the main sales generated by the targeted artist without affecting the artist’s share.
Bestsellers at Streetlab
Inspired by Artblocks, the platform offers a collection page where you can see drops of artists selected to monetize. There can be two different types of drops: a 1/1 auction or a fixed price collection with some unique pieces.
At Openea, an official Streetlab collection will also be created for the secondary market of all pieces of art created on the Streetlab platform. It will be possible to filter by artists and by sub-collection to easily find what you are looking for.
Streetlab Genesis offers specific benefits to its holders:
- Exclusive drops will be reserved for Streetlab Genesis owners only
- Early access for a drop before a public sale on Streetlab.io
- A price reduction for a specific drop
- An airdrop reserved for Streetlab Genesis owners
Streetlab business model
The development of the Streetlab platform and its launch will be funded by the main sale of the genesis collection Free Muertos tribute.
Restoring the value of Free Muertos holders is central to our approach. In fact, they are makes the Lab possible and begins a virtuous cycle create value to support a healthy secondary market.
Lab revenue sources are:
Streetlab.io service fees represent 15% of all primary sales managed on the platform. The distribution of secondary costs will be discussed individually in each project.
Streetlab Genesis Secondary Market
The majority of all secondary market royalties generated by Streetlab Genesis will be allocated to the lab’s coffers.
As Streetlab grows, the team and community will use every opportunity to launch new projects. They will go creating new products and adding value for owners.
As mentioned in the presentation, Streetlab is built by the community for the benefit of the latter, as a decentralized organization. Management mechanisms aim to restore decentralization and efficiency. Therefore, the structure adopted includes three levels of management, in particular:
